The small classes and campus sizes. This was the only university I found that offered my program as a degree. I liked the idea of living in a small city as well, it felt more friendly than the big city that I left. The admission process was also easy.
Certain courses leave something to be desired, and I wish we were taught more hands-on skills and less theory. Otherwise the course curriculum is what you would expect, and I am being taught all the skills I will need to know
Best for my degree, that I wanted. The best education program out there, as well as major and minor programs that I'm taking, are amazing. They have been great and most teachers here are great plus I know some teachers who have graduated from here and they loved it.
It is decent. It makes sense for what you are being trained for, which is the purpose of school some classes seem pointless but you need to have a background in all areas to be able to the teacher it decently especially to early/middle years.
